This past weekend [7-19-15] I attended our family reunion on my mother’s side down at my cousin’s house in the outskirts of the Cities. I had a really had a great time. While I was there I handed out a few of my homemade business cards for Bernström Quilt Works to a few select members of my family, because if you need to start somewhere, trust family.
While conversing with my cousin Tom he made an observation about quilts being a craft, and I clarified my sense that what I was doing was art, not craft. Yes, on the whole quilting can be considered craft, but what qualifies quilting as art? I want to spend some time here in this Blog to address how this distinction applies to what I am attempting to achieve.
